These days, Disney is all about remaking their old classic animated films into fancy updated revivals using the ~best~ technology. First we had The Jungle Book, then we have Beauty and The Beast to look forward to, but NOW the OG of Disney movies is getting it's turn!

Disney confirmed the~AMAZING~ news in a press release today.

Jon Favreau- the guy who directed The Jungle Book- is set to direct the iconic film. Disney also noted that "like Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King will include songs from the animated film," which is a HUGE relief.

There's no release date as of yet, or info on ~how~ they will be creating the animals, but stay tuned!
